Rare Twin Peaks reunion to take place in Toronto

Posted by Aubrey Jax / August 8, 2014

Twin Peaks TorontoDo high school reunions still happen, or did Facebook kill the vibe? "How's your cat since that last pic you posted?" "So you really got into inspirational quotes after rehab, hey?" etc. Not my cup of tea. In fact, I prefer a damn fine cup of coffee.

So the only reunion that matters this year will be later this month at Fan Expo (also prone to throngs of extreme cat lovers, come to think of it): the massive comic convention will host a rare but mini ensemble of the original Twin Peaks cast. So far Sheryl Lee (Laura Palmer), Sherilyn Fenn (Audrey Horne), and Ray Wise (Leland Palmer) are slated to attend. I swear there's this guy who works at No Frills in the Junction who probably looks more like Leland than Wise at this point, but - okay, no spoilers.

Fans will have a chance to meet the stars of the cult TV drama at a live q&a, autograph session, and photo op. Here's a glimpse at the July Twin Peaks reunion in LA - well, one spoiler, everyone looks adorable. No word if anyone else is going to show, but Chris Isaak will be in town the day before Fan Expo - excuse my lack of tact here, but, fire, walk with me.

While the obvious inspiration for this will be the Entire Mystery Blu-ray, does this string of reunions signal a coming remake? Another season? Another rumour? We'll have to wait for the convention - or maybe a cryptic dream giant.

Fan Expo runs from August 28-31 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. The Twin Peaks reunion is at noon on Saturday as part of their Horror programming. View the full schedule here.

Pretty lackluster life so far?

Twin Peaks? That is so last century. And here I thought Jax was about 17.

Silly comments. Twin Peaks is only the greatest drama series of all time. It will never be dated. Very exciting news!

Last century? It's still being talked about today! So exciting I wish I wasn't in AB. Love you Sheryl!
